Pete the Panda (Paperback)
Pete the Panda lives a typical panda life - eating bamboo, climbing trees, sleeping and swimming. Unfortunately, his habitat is being decimated by people, and one day he goes to a bamboo patch that has been cut down. Since Pandas eat almost exclusively bamboo, this is serious indeed, but his friend Pat says to him, "Don't lose hope. You never know what tomorrow may bring". Indeed, tomorrow brings a bamboo patch that has not been cut down, and Pete and Pat have a great day eating bamboo, climbing trees, sleeping and swimming. The value in the story is that it teaches children both that human actions can affect the environment around them and that even when things seem gloomy, there is still hope. We never know what tomorrow may bring.
